        This is going to be a long build... Australia is still a contender but concedes the lead is blowing out!

          when he bought all that oak for the ribs, I figured it was going to be a pretty long build... I am really curious, after seeing this installment, how much of the original boat is going to be left. As he said that the builders follow the spirit of the design, not the actual design - and he's going to follow the letter of the designer - that means that he's building a new boat in the space where the old boat is sitting. Even at this point it's resto-mod because he used a different wood as the keel beam (replacing the oak with purple heart)

            I'm guessing at least 90% of the wood is going to be replaced.
            It's going to be a beautiful thing when its done.
            How far away are you from it SBG, is it tempting to go and check it out in the flesh?

            I'm about 9220miles away as the crow flies so I will not get there this weekend!

              90 miles, give or take a dozen - but it's a solid 4 hours to get there because there's a ferry ride, during this time of year, it could be a lot more because of tourists.... I've been tempted, but right now there's other things a bit more pressing

                      Yes, I should get out of bed earlier on a Sunday!

                      I did see it there about three hours before you linked it and thought I was too late already!

                        I'll be boasting of this for awhile - thanks!

                              it's pretty sad when someone halfway around the world gets the link up before the guy who's 4 hours away from the publisher that said, I was in church so I know you're doomed because of this
